What an honour; an award for me….

What a lovely surprise it was to open up WordPress a couple of days ago and find this lovely award waiting for me. It came from one of my favourite bloggers Eleenie of Denobears blog . Click on this link and have a look at her and her world.

I find it very hard to get my 70-year-old head around the concept of the internet. Imagine millions of messages, pictures, music somehow flying around out there, and magically getting to who ever it was intended for or sitting “out there” waiting in cyberspace for some one to log into it. Amazing…

I don’t understand the logistics of it but I love it and am thankful for the opportunity it gives to connect with people all over the world. A modern take on the old-fashioned pen-pal system. With the WordPress programme we visit people all over the world and, like in pen-pal days, share experiences and make friends with the “like” and “comment” facilities in the posts.

There are millions of people sharing their hobbies, lifestyles, thoughts, photos and much more so I feel quite special when another blogger acknowledges my blog. So back to Eleenie, thank you for sending the award. I enjoy following you as you tell us about your life in Bulgaria and your garden and the things you grow and see day by day, and of course your lovely dogs and photos you post.

In accepting this award it comes with strings attached…..

1. Thank the person who nominated me and link back to them in my post.

2. Share 7 things about myself.

3. Nominate 15 bloggers that I admire.

4. Leave a comment advising them of their nomination.

Just recently I also had the “versatile blogger award” and on that I gave 16 bloggers I follow so I will link you to that post and those great blogs and add another 5 that I have just recently found…

1.. Nyparrott

2.. Oak blog

3.. Photo nature blog


5.. skedazzles

I will put the sharing 7 things on hold for the moment as the weather is so great out side Matilda’s door that we just have to go stretch our legs and do a walk along the Main Street in this little old out back town of Winton that we are in at the moment…

See you soon with more info about Winton…
